Sample text

I’m not going to lie to my best friend. ’ In a mutter she added, ‘If she agrees, I mean …’ ‘It’s for the best, Cassie. You have to know how to feed safely. ’ Shutting her eyes, Cassie gave a frustrated moan; then she felt Ranjit’s hand squeeze hers once again. He sighed deeply and turned to Cassie with an attempt at a smile. ‘Look, I’m just glad you’re here, and you’re OK. ’ He leaned over and kissed her gently on the lips, lingering for a moment before pulling away. ‘And about this …’ he murmured, pressing his forehead to Cassie’s.
